Styling Lesson No6 – Dress for Winter!

Hello again!

Its really late at night as I am writing this, almost 3.30 a.m. and its actually the first day in Greece that is a bit cold! To be honest, this summer was too long, so I am happy for first time in my life that winter is closing. Caught in this winter mood , I decided to show you a style I love. I hope you like it too!

Hermes  no6

Its  since 2006 that the fashion moto is “Grey is the new Black”. All the last seasons grey is so popular in both male and female fashion scene. Its softer than black and yeah I admit it,  I love it as much I love black. The outfit highlight is off course the stunning dark gray coat from Laqroki. I added a gray turtleneck sweater from [savvy avvy] and paired it with a gray faded jeans from Damiani that is actually a last night group gift from Pompeja. Lastly the (cant find any good word to describe) latest Patagonia Boots from [ hoorenbeek ] and a pair of a great detailed vision glasses from Kalnins. Just wanted to mention here, that the quality and the detail of the entire glasses line of Maris Kanto  is something to admire! I finished the look with the fab hair with hat from Gritty Kitty, in  which I modified the bangs quite a lot to fit my taste.

The stunning skin I am wearing is Kalil from Signature Skins (creator:  Simple Spad). I must tell you that from the moment my eye dropped on that skin I was instantly in love. I always search for skins that make me differ from the typical  tanned Caucasian stereotype, mainly because I am not like that in RL. Diversity FTW! And this skin has all the main features I was looking for a long time. Spad made exceptional work on the face especially the on the eyebrows which are gorgeous. Be sure to go and try a demo as soon as possible!

In my next post I ll show you more skins (including this) from Spad including the one he is about to release that is absolutely amazing in a detailed review! Beware! I ll show myself with undies! LOL

See you soon! And go for shopping NOW!!!!

Styling Lesson No5 – Everyday Essentials : Be Comfy!

Hello everybody! Been a while since my last post… but I really feel passionate about this one. So I hope you enjoy!

So, the thing is, we all have our everyday comfort clothes, right? I was looking around and noticed that I didn’t have much of a “everday” style. Most things were dressed up or dressed down, no in-between. So this post is all about being comfy everyday but still having that fabulous style about you. The essentials for everyday comfort have to be a nice comfy pair of jeans or pants! For this post I decided to go with blue jeans, since like 70% of my inventory is black and I don’t want all my posts looking similar!  For the top, I went with a very nice everyday jumper/shirt combo. For the shoes, I went with the AMAZING Kalnins Braxters, these trainers are just great, in quality and price! They look really good on! So that’s my everyday look, with the glasses and ciggie added for a little edge. And there you have it, we don’t have to look like we just fell off vivian westoods handbag of fashion everyday! Sometimes it’s just as good to go with the more relaxed (yet still stylish) look!

Hope you guys enjoyed reading this post! Kisses and hugs to you all xx

Styling Lesson No4 – Wardrobe Essentials : The Leather Jacket!

Hello again this is Hermes with one more styling lesson.Sit back and enjoy it. /me feels like writing a lots of stuff tonight!

Yeah I know what you must be thinking by now about me..”That man is really classic like a grandpa! bleh” LOL. Well, one thing is sure about me, you will rarely catch me in sl 2 days in a row with the same style. One day I may be really emoish, or punkish, or even boheme with dreads! It’s all about my mood. Nevertheless you just can’t bypass the classic style that is always classy and damn yeah I love to see men dress like that in both lives. Also, ya know its not always party time!!

So lets get back to what I chose for this outfit. One other thing about me is that I love layering! I really don’t like the “jeans & tee” look! Blame me! When I have options why not use them after all? Basic item: The Leather Jacket! I chose one from Valiant, that I have for quite a long time in my inventory, but still remains one of my favorites. I love the fact that its open buttoned and its style is one from the top trends for fall/winter 2009.  Sadly, as I just discovered this fantastic jacket is not available for sale anymore, but I am pretty sure most of you have it already in your inventories. If not, try to find something in the same style! I matched it with black and brown accessories to add variety and modern touch to it. Don’t be afraid to mix black and brown leather accessories and other materials. The trend “same color belt,  shoes and handbag”  is so 1990! Also be sure to invest in a pair of combat boots. There are many styles available in SL to satisfy every taste. Adding them to the outfit instantly adds more modern touch and makes you look more adventurous!

Go for shopping and “Look Classy”!
